    Apr. 21,2015:  Mary Doyle Keefe, who in 1943 posed as “Rosie the Riveter” for famed painter Norman Rockwell, dies at age 92 in Simsbury, Connecticut.

It’s hard to know if this report is an intended leak – an old Washington tradition to float ideas to gauge reaction before taking a public stance, or a serious proposal that would fulfill House Speaker Paul Ryan’s long-held goal of turning Social Security into a hybrid public-private system, where Americans would give some of their savings to Wall Street to invest.
